The Solicitors' (Non-Contentious Business) Remuneration Order 2009 comes into force on 11 August. This Order will abolish the remuneration certificate procedure. At the same time the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) is introducing an "emergency" rule to the Solicitors Code of Conduct 2007 to preserve clients' rights to information about remuneration.
Solicitors will need to make amendments to your billing procedures to take account of these changes. This Practice Note explains the changes in more detail and sets out actions you will need to take.
